Piglet making dash for Forth Road Bridge saved by lorry driver

A big-hearted HGV truck driver got the shock of his life when he saw a piglet running along a busy roadway.

The terrified piglet was running along a busy carriageway in the outside lane towards the Forth Road Bridge in Fife.

Scottish SPCA Chief Inspector John Chisholm said: “The poor girl was found running about the road and was clearly frightened, she wouldn’t keep still so it was very difficult to catch her.

“Thanks to the quick and decisive actions of the HGV driver the piglet was kept out of harm’s way until I arrived.

“Had she escaped from a transporter then she should have been marked or tagged, but she had no ID of any kind.

“Luckily she didn’t have any injuries and is now safely at our Inverness centre and we’re looking to give her a new home where she can spend the rest of her days.”

The SSPCA is trying to find the piggy’s owner.
